Table 2: Various options available for the physiotherapeutic management of hallux limitus.

Orthotic interventions(i) weight offloading orthotics
(ii) offload the first MTP joint during push off phase of the gait cycle
(iii) medial arch support
(iv) dynamic splinting for first MTJ extension

Manual methods(i) long axis traction of MTP joint
(ii) sesamoid joint mobilizations
(iii) flexor halluces strengthening
(iv) manipulation of the first MTP
(v) Stretching of the capsular contracture and the associated tendon on plantar aspect improves the pulley mechanism of the FHL (flexor hallucis longus) tendon
(vi) Intrinsic foot flexor exercise
